The new testament is a lot like New Coke: Better for the heart, but never quite took off in the marketplace. Why is that? I have some ideas:

* Far less bloodshed, unless you count the temper tantrum by that guy from Spiderman. Epic Fail.

* The wiki page for the NT is way short.

* I can't find one mention of a Hittite, which it a tittie hiding in plain sight.

Well the Old Testament really was grander in scope. It addressed how it all started, had several world-changing events, focused on a larger period of time, and gave you ways to cleanse yourself of sin.

The new testament gives you a new way to cleanse yourself of sin, talks about how it all ends, and covers a much smaller period of time - pretty much just focusing on one person and their life.

It'd be like watching the first Star Wars movie, but then watching a sequel where the entire movie only followed a day in the life of Han Solo with hints of how he would violently die at some point in the future.

So, it's like that Wheel Of Time book that took place in like 10 hours? That's what Roskins told me at least.

The New Testament definitely needs more booze, chicks, and explosions.
